This was a fun challenge and I love that it is one of those trends that is not over done..at least not yet! And we did have a hitch in our giddy up this week with the link party, so I apologize and will try to never let it happen again.
You especially made it hard for Honeylyn, our guest judge from Honeydew Events. Read more about her here.
Stop by her website and see all of her fun, gorgeous events. And birthday parties any kid or adult would love to have.
This is what Honeylyn had to say about her judging experience here at The CSI Project.
“I really enjoyed being a guest judge this week as I got to see many different approaches to the ombre challenge. As a blogger who posts DIY tutorials myself, it is so difficult coming up with a new, interesting project on a regular basis! Seeing how crafters out there put their spin on a project is inspiring and a welcome change to the “normal” blogging routine! Thanks for having me!”
Ok, onto the winners. Isn’t that why we are all here?
Judge’s comments are in italics.
#12 Starsky and Hutch from Twice Lovely
Extra points for a name that made me giggle! I liked this project because it was a different twist on the ombre furniture we have seen. I liked that the paint was done on the interior and had a glass panel. I also have an affinity for the color green. I would definitely put this in my home! Great job!
